Το κλασικό των Fisher-Z από το πρώτο τους άλμπουμ. Έτσι μου έρχεται να το γυρίσω σε “ενότητα” τραγουδιών …ιατροφαρμακευτικής / βιογενετικής φύσεως. Είναι και αυτό ένα concept – το concept της από δω και πέρα ζωής μας κατά πάσαν πιθανότητα.

The Fisher-Z classic from their debut album. Maybe I should start a whole section of songs of …medical / biogenetic nature. It is a concept afetr all – chances are it’s gonna be the concept of our lives from now on.

Pretty paracetamol you soothe my aching brow,
I need you when my heard is spinning round,
I look into the looking glass but none of them is me,
It takes at least an hour to put me down,
First impressions often lie,
They often fool the naked eye.
I hold you gently on my tongue and then you drift away,
It’s hard to read the writing on the label,
I force my eyes out sideways but I can’t resist the strain,
And it don’t help me, no it don’t help me,
First impressions often lie,
They often fool the naked eye.
I think I recognize a friendly face I’ve seen before,
I’m floating far too quickly to be sure,
(don’t you despair)
Take this inner web of twisted memories and lies,
(There’s no one there)
I’m fighting for a reason to go on.
Pretty paracetamol you soothe my aching brow,
I need you when my heard is spinning round,
I multiply myself by two in the mirror on the wall,
And it don’t help me, no it don’t help me,
First impressions often lie,
They often fool the naked eye.
I think I’ve lost control, I think I’ve lost control,
I think I’ve lost control, I think I’ve lost control…

Enjoy!

and

Stay Safe!

* For my friends who didn’t know, or first timers here, Oannes [aka Socratis Papahatzis] is my husband, partner in life and music and the one with my undying admiration. Together we have a band MK-O [the music of Marina Kanavaki & Oannes]. So, it’s my pleasure to share with you his [and sometimes mine] musical selections. Do visit his site. He has my highest recommendation!
